Playing Golf On Holidays To Costa Del Sol

Anybody inspired by Spanish golfers such as Sergio Garcia or Jose Maria Olazabel should check out the golf courses in the Costa Del Sol. ¬†They have been designed by some of the masters of the game and range from the gentle to the highly challenging. What’s more, they are blessed with year round sunshine and spectacular coastal views. Make the most out of golf in this part of the world by visiting the following courses.


Valderamma is without doubt the most famous course in the whole of the Costa Del Sol. It was the setting for a magnificent European Ryder Cup victory in 1997. It has also earned special praise from the notable English player, Nick Faldo. However, the enormous par 5 17th is probably best avoided by those with a beginner-intermediate handicap.


For fairway scenery there’s nowhere to beat this Andalucian course. On the walk from the tee to the hole you may enjoy a pleasant sea breeze and see native birds such as wild duck and flamingoes fly overhead. You’ll want to exercise caution on particularly windy days, as there are plenty of water hazards and bunkers.


You might want to walk in the company of a Spanish caddy or tour guide, who can provide in depth descriptions of holes such as the Los Olivos and Cortivitarte on this course. You’ll should also keep your swing straight if you’re to avoid the loss of balls in the bordering wild vegetation.

La Cala

Your Holidays to Costa Del Sol, will not feel complete unless you’ve driven, chipped and putted your way around the courses of La Cala. You may like to perfect your swing on the America course before moving on to the holes of Asia. The perfect day of golfing action could be finished off with a refreshing pint of Spanish beer at Mulligans Irish bar.
